Today I am going to tell such a disjointed tale that I fear you will be driven off. It's one of those things that started off to be one thing and turned into quite another.
Let's begin with The Potatoes. I was visiting Pat who shared a link to a Blogher site where the blogger discussed something that we must all consider when writing and sharing photographs. You can find Pat's post *here* and then follow her link if you're interested.
Pat has the most amazing photograph (the second one) to share. I'd really like to pin it; however, I am rethinking Pinterest entirely in light of the link mentioned above.
So what does this all have to do with a bag of potatoes? Well, after reading said article, I remembered that I had used a photo from g00gle without sharing a source and that I needed to replace it with a photo of my own. I took the photo you saw yesterday and did just that. Now, instead of seeing a little pile of potatoes on burlap, you see my own 10 pound bag of potatoes. And that is where the fun begins.
Why? Because some of you thought that I had found the lost potatoes. It's perfectly normal. People make such conclusions all the time and not just about small potatoes. The brain is always searching for connections and will make them whenever the dots are not connected. Yes, I have lots of willy-nilly dots over here floating about.
So now you know the awful truth. I have ten pounds of potatoes still on the loose and ten pounds of potatoes as a replacement bag used for a nabbed photograph. Do you suppose potatoes have any attraction to other potatoes? That would be lovely on so many levels. Have you seen the price of potatoes lately?
(By the way, did you know that you can right click on any image in Blogger and a menu box will open. There is an option there that says: Search g00gle for this image. Go ahead sometime, you may be surprised.)
P.S. The dice? Yes, just washing the dice. They had that odor that comes from the manufacturing process. It would have meant a new game if it hadn't worked, but it did. Yay!
***A reminder: A Downton Abbey discussion right here tomorrow. Yes, I will give fair warning at the beginning of the post.
